KidzEyes - A Great Safe Site for Great Kids!

I'm not sure how many of you have kids between the ages 6-12, but about a year ago I found this great kids panel site called KidzEyes. And we love it. So far my son has earned 5,400 KidzPoints which equals out to $54 dollars. Which by the way, we just redeemed and received a check in the mail.

Every 100 KidzPoints is equal to $1 and you can cash out as early as 1000 KidzPoints which would be $10. My son chose to wait because he wanted the pot to grow so to speak. And of course after redeeming, he was finally able to buy the New Super Mario Brothers game for the Wii which he had been wanting for a while now.

The way he earned the money was for doing simple surveys that are geared toward kids his age. For instance, there was a Lunch Survey, a Sweet Snacks Survey, Food Character Survey, and a Spy Toy Survey just to name a few. The surveys come a few times a month so it's not overwhelming for kids. And some are constructed just for the child, some for the parent or guardian, and some are for both to take part in. Just yesterday I received a survey for myself to do called the Mom Shopping Survey. I like this because this site not only involves my son but myself as well. Also, along with monthly surveys, KidzEyes also sends out its KidzEyes SuperPoll survey every month as well. Taking part in this survey enters your child into the KidzEyes sweepstakes where they could win cool prizes!

As for how the surveys get to my son, well right now, even though he could use his own email address, I have them coming straight to my email. But that is only because he really has no interest in using his own at the moment. But this works out fine for the both of us. This is another benefit I like about KidzEyes because your child does not need to have his or her own email address to join. But if they do use their own, no matter what, KidzEyes will always let you, the parent or guardian, know that your child has just received an email to participate in a survey. So you are ALWAYS in the know. Another benefit about this site is that KidzEyes requires parental consent for your child to join.

KidzEyes is a great safe way for your kids to make a little extra cash while feeling like their opinions count. If you have any questions or concerns about the site you should check out KidzEyes FAQ's. Loads of questions, lots of answers. I highly recommend KidzEyes for your child.

General Mills Reduces Sugar in Kid's Cereals


Way to go General Mills!!

I'm sure many of you have already heard the exciting news. General Mills announced its commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving. I know for myself this is great news because my son and I both LOVE General Mills cereals. Not only for breakfast but also for dinner or an afternoon or evening snack. There are days when I get home from work and I'm just too tired to cook. So we pull out that box of General Mills cereal and grab the skim milk for a light & quick meal. It seriously makes my evenings much easier from time to time. And knowing that the sugar in General Mills cereal is being reduced even further makes it even more worth while.

Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children´s diets.

Other cereal benefits:

  • Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children´s diets.
  • Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child´s diet today.
  • More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.
Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.

For more information about kids and cereals, please visit Cereal Health and Wellness.

Right now if you visit here you will find a $1 off coupon for one of four General Mills cereals. Being healthy means being happy. So go out and buy yourself a box and get to eating.

*I would like to give a big shout out to General Mills & MyBlogSpark for providing me with this invaluable information, the online coupon link, and 4 VIP coupons for General Mills cereal. Thank you very much!

Please note, personal opinions about this product are solely my own.
